This recipe comes from Wendy Paul’s brand new cookbook, “101 Gourmet Cookies for Everyone”, which I just ordered from Amazon. And when she says for everyone, she means for everyone; there are recipes for dieters, gluten free-ers and even vegans. Zach was late to work and if you’re late, you have to bring doughnuts but I suggested cookies so these are for him to take to work when he comes home at lunch. Anyone can bring doughnuts, but homemade Wendy Paul cookies? I know what I’d pick!
1 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 (4 oz) package vanilla instant pudding mix (dry powder only)
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 1/4 cups flour
2 cups chocolate chips
Cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add vanilla, eggs and pudding mix. In a separate bowl, mix together baking soda and flour and gently add to wet ingredients. Fold in chocolate chips. Use a small cookie scoop to drop dough onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for 8 – 10 minutes, until sides are golden. Remove from oven and cool completely on wire rack.
Mmmm…cookies…I think you should bring them to ViPeR meeting monday… : )
